Once a studio for emerging artists and designers, this bustling artistic building was transformed by Rodic Davidson Architects into a contemporary family home. The transformation maintained the traditional Art Deco style achieved by the steel framed glazing and included many artistic pieces within the interior to pay homage to the building’s history.
The renovation took almost three years to complete because many structural works needed to be carried out to create a double height living space. The family home has an extremely open plan design, each room is subtly divided into different areas for relaxing, entertaining and dining. Only one area of the first floor remains, which is an office space that sits on a new mezzanine. Under the building a whole new floor was excavated to create a lower ground floor to house the bedrooms, utility area, playroom and cloakroom; all stretching out underneath the garden.
Artist Studio featured in the April edition of Elle Decoration magazine, highlighting the striking architectural design by Rodic Davidson Architects, Rigby and Rigby, and the stunning interiors designed by Suzy Hoodless. Internally and externally the walls were painted white to beautifully contrast the black frames of the steel glazing and to complement the vibrant contemporary artwork inside. This whole combination is an elegant nod to the origins of this building.
